EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- The New York Giants' offensive line is once again doing the injury shuffle.

For the sixth time in 12 games, an injury will force the Giants to field a new starting combination on the line in front of quarterback Eli Manning.

The latest lineman to go down was third-year center Jim Cordle. He injured his left knee in Sunday's loss to Dallas and was placed on injured reserve, the second center lost for the season.

Kevin Boothe, who started the season opener at center, will move there from left guard for Sunday's road game against theWashington Redskins. Third-year pro James Brewer, who has a start at each of the guard positions this season, will take over for Boothe at left guard.
